2012 Picture of the Week (11/52) – Ume Blossoms

Japanese plum trees, or ume, usually start blooming around the end of February. But this year, they’re late. I had a little time yesterday before work, so I went to Kodomo Shizen Koen (park) in Makigahara, and I found this tree blooming. Cherry trees should be blooming in a couple weeks. Spring is coming!

  1. Beautiful! The Plum Blossoms are a great prelude to the Cherry Blossoms later on in spring 🙂
